Submerging Technologies

Post  electron_plumber on Sat Sep 25, 2010 10:52 pm

Greetings All!

I've been thinking about sponsoring a DIY club at a local school, and thought it might be fun to do some interactive fountain projects. One thought was to do some laminar water jets with the kids, and looking around, I ran across this forum. It's great to see so many people interested in this!

I'm an electrical engineer by trade (i.e. an "electron plumber"), but I have had the opportunity to dabble a bit with interactive fountains. My contribution in this area was a project called "Submerging Technologies" which we exhibited at SIGGRAPH 2006. Here's a link to the project website at my former employer:

https://www.merl.com/projects/submerging/

Basically, there were 3 pieces:

The Tantalus Fountain which withdraws from the hand
The AquaHarp which was a liquid musical harp
The TouchPond which was a liquid touch screen


Here's a short video showing early prototype versions (the real ones were considerably nicer, but I don't have a good video of those):



Anyhow, let me know what you think!
